There is a local audio dealer in Denver who allows customers to trial the gear in-home overnight, or for a few days. When we talked about my unhappiness with ported and open enclosure subwoofers, he suggested a sealed version - specifically the velodyne optimum series. He gave me a caveat - that the bass would sound "correct", and that some people wouldn't prefer it this way.

Once I got this home and positioned correctly, I was amazed. The bass is indeed a lot tighter. I ran the sub through about 2.5 hours of music, and jumped through 7 movies that I am very familiar with. This is an outstanding sub, it really performs very, very well. The more I asked it to do, the better things got. The Velodyne Optimum sealed encosure sub does to open/ported subs what the Folded-Ribbon tweeter does to cone tweeters. Simply amazing.

I've auditioned a few subs at home recently and the Velodyne Optimum was, hands down, the clear winner. If you can, listen to one of these in your own home - you'll not soon forget the experience. I couldn't - which is why I purchased one.

In a 22x16 foot room with 14 foot cathedrel ceilings this Sub is great! The auto set up feature makes this very easy to set up and use. I tried the def tech super cube first but returned it for this Velodyne and I love it

This truly is an incredible subwoofer. This sub replaced a previous Velodyne I had owned since 1995, a VA-1012X. That sub served me faithfully for the last 20 years, but it was well past time to upgrade! My musical interest is quite varied, from country music to classical music and pipe organ. I wanted a sub that could reproduce the very lowest 32' organ pedal tones, but also wanted substantial impact for movies. I read numerous reviews of various types of subs (sealed vs. ported) and thought I would be giving up some of the "punch" in order to get depth and accuracy from a sealed box. I, however, was mistaken. This sub does it all. It renders music faithfully, accurately, and oh so deeply. It also delivers sound effects from movie tracks with authority. It's placed in a rather large room in my home and fills the space up nicely. I'm amazed at the sound and very pleased with my purchase. If you want a sub that "does it all," look no further. It may be pricey, but it's worth every penny.

Got my subwoofer from retailer in Florida through Amazon! Price was right and the sub is even better! This sub has it all! Equalizer , preset sound effect, volume adjustment , all through a tiny remote! If u have a 5.1 or better surround system this sub is a must to seamlessly blend the sub and eliminate boomy base! Buy the 12 inch! It comes in 10 and 8! The 12 provides the best sound stage! Excellent sub no matter the price!

Do not be fooled by the small size. The amount of air pressure this sub is capable of shocked me. It's quiet when it needs to be and very present when called for.

Just bought this thing after having given it a lot of thought. Why? Because I have this beast in my corporate office under my desk, that's why. Yes, I work on weekends and after hours, so I can let my hair down with this thing. The clincher is the remote control for the volume and the presets. Not many other subs in this range have it. In general, it has way more potential than what I use it for, but it does the trick. I have Bel Canto gear managing a signal from my Mac and some Eclipse desktop speakers. Amazing how these speakers finally sounded right with the sub. Without it, they were really quite horrible.

I picked one of these up at a local retailer and all I can say is wow. I've always been a serious audiophile on a limited budget and after hearing this sub I had to lay down the extra money. I'm currently running all paradigms and had a DSP3200 complementing them. That in itself was a great sub. I was able to run this sub side by side with my 3200 and could not believe the difference. If you are serious about audio this is a great sub to have. So you know I'm saving my money so I can get a second one for my room.

Provides tight, accurate, and hard hitting bass. You absolutely get what you pay for with the sub. Superior to the Klipsch subs I have heard.
